Disney Inspired Treats (plus one)

Minnie Mouse is, of course, one of the most noticeable of Walt Disney's characters, next to Mickey. I was asked to do an edible fruit display for a Minnie Mouse themed birthday! Here's what we came up with!

Minnie Mouse Fruit Bowls!

1 round seedless watermelon
1 cataloupe
Pineapple (can/cans of DOLE® chunk)

Using a melon baller, scoop out the watermelon and cantaloupe.
Cut the other fruit into desired shapes.
Combine and fill the watermelon.
Secure the cantaloupe halves to the top of the
watermelon with toothpicks, and fill with fruit.


Not many people remember the Disney character Willy the Whale. He was an opera singing whale that wanted to sing at the met. There were reports of a mysterious voice singing deep in the sea. It was Willie the Whale!

Willie the Whale

Take one large oval watermelon and using a template that we downloaded from clip art, carefully carve the watermelon. We started with a square in the top and hollowed out most of the inside. Then carefully carve the rest of the tail. We used the small end of a melon baller to carve out eye sockets and placed a grape in each. I used a potato peeler (the pointy end) and carved his smile. We then filled it with fruit. (the melon, strawberries, can/cans of DOLE® chunk  pineapple, grapes, cantaloupe and blueberries) If transporting, you need to put something under the tail to support it and keep it from breaking! 

OK! It's not Disney! It's Dr Suess that was the inspiration for these Grinch Mountain Cakes!
These are Red Velvet Cheesecake Mini Grinch Mountain Cakes! Say that 5 times fast! LOL
